Logitect does not ship the "Unify" setup for Linux, but I have a Linux version that is in the "public domain". So getting the divices to "pair" under Linux is a solved problem.
would a wireless usb-keyboard work on a kindle-usb-keyboard-hack bypassing the need for a powered hub (to prevent battery-drainage)?
